Odyssey Storytelling: Fake

It's been almost a month since the May Odyssey Storytelling event and I'm still cracking up when I think about Drew Cronyn's story of finding life (and vocal) direction in an important book, Vene Aguirre revealing the identity of her true father to her dad, and other stories about faking it.

Ways of Hearing

The drive south at Christmas took a few hours longer than usual. There was lots of road work and impatient drivers hitting into each other and blocking the road, which made for more travelers getting impatient and doing things that caused them to hit into others and block more road. The silver lining was discovering the short run podcast, Ways of Hearing:

Ways of Hearing is a six-part series, originally heard on Showcase, hosted by musician Damon Krukowski (Galaxie 500, Damon & Naomi), exploring the nature of listening in our digital world. Each episode looks at a different way that the switch from analog to digital audio is influencing our perceptions, changing our ideas of Time, Space, Love, Money, Power and Noise. This is about sound, and the ways we are using it to share information in the world right now. Our voices carry further than they ever did before, thanks to digital media. But how are they being heard?

Episode one is embedded above as part of KALW's The Spot program and all of the podcast's 6.5 episodes are available at Radiotopia.
